TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of the citizens of Queensland, draws to the attention of the House the significant environmental, economic and social concerns that the Miriam Vale Shire residents have regarding the construction of a desalination plant to supply fresh water for the townships of Agnes Water and 1770. This petition calls on the Queensland State Government and Miriam Vale Shire Council to urgently take all steps necessary to defer the letting of any contracts for the desalination plant by 7 months, until the matter of water supply solutions can be considered, ie, by a democratically elected Greater Gladstone Regional Council.
